New exhibition, Hong Kong Future Diaspora currently showing at Bloc Projects.

about

 

Eelyn Lee is an award-winning artist and filmmaker who has exhibited across UK including Barbican, Tate Modern, National Portrait Gallery and Whitechapel Gallery as well as internationally in Paris, Berlin, Bogotá and Toronto.

Her art practice combines collective research, devised theatre, screen writing and filmmaking to create frameworks for collaboration. In 2016 Eelyn co-founded Social Art Network who convened the inaugural Social Art Summit [2018], an artist-led review of socially engaged arts practice in UK and beyond. 

Eelyn's Hong Kong/English heritage motivates her interest in race, identity and ’othering’. She is currently developing her first narrative feature film and is in pre-production for Born on Sunday Silent, a short film funded by BFI Network. Both films explore hidden stories from Britain's colonial past through genre based story-telling.

That we would see something translated so profoundly from a theatrical space to a cinematic one in just a handful of days is really extraordinary... A wonderful paradox."

Gareth Evans, film curator (Whitechapel Gallery) on Monster
